How to remove franke sink?

If the clips are plastic you will have to snap them off. the metal ones you might have to cut them off. With the old sinks, when the screws were broken or rusted you would have to cut the clips. NO Easy job.

How long ago was the sink installed?? It sounds like it was a faulty installation. Shouldn't the installer be responsible for fixing the problem??

Cutting a new counter top for a sink

If you are installing a basic stainless steel sink into a laminate over particle board counter top-

Find the center of the sink along the legnth of the counter and mark the counter. Measure the sink from the top. Lay out the edges on the counter. Place the sink upside down on the counter and align with your marks. Trace around the sink in pencil. Subtract the distance to the flange where the clips slide in. Draw a new line inside the first one. This is your cut line. Check that when you make the cut that you will not hit the face frame of the cabinet. Move the sink back if needed and make new marks. Some cabinets are a tight fit. Cut the hole for the sink with a jigsaw. Start with the back line first. You may find on a counter with a back splash the jigsaw will not fit. Drill an 1/8" hole to mark the underside and cut from the bottom of the counter. Use a 1" spade bit to drill starter holes at the corners keeping away from the line you traced when the sink was upside down. Stay away from that line or you will have a hole the sink won't cover. Cut the front line. Drill a hole in the center of the counter you can put your finger in to catch the piece when it falls. Now cut the side lines while supporting the counter that is being removed. Discard the slug you removed.

Test fit the sink and remove any extra until the sink just drops in. Remove the sink and set it aside. You need at least 2 sink clips on each side of the sink but use 3 if you can get to them. Determine the location you want the clips at. Use the 3/4" spade bit to drill uot a pocket for the clips to go into. They will normally hit the bottom layer of particle board in the front and back. Center the bit horizontally 3/8" up from the underside of the counter. Drill your holes 1" deep. This is where the spring clip on your sink bolts will grab. You can test that the clips will fit then put a small beed of clear siliconized acrilic latex calk around the edge of the sink and install. Wipe up any extra squeeze out with a wet rag and then tighten the bolts and clean up again.

Now you are ready to install the plumbing. If you are using a new garbage disposer with the dish washer draining into it there is a small plastic disc you have to knock out before the dish washer can drain into the disposal. That plug is there to seal the disposer if you don't have a dish washer.

Get more help if you do not understand all the instructions. If you are pretty handy with mechanical things you should be able to get this done. If you have a different kind of sink please specify that and get more help.

Is it a good idea to install this sink without mounting clips

you can install it without mounting clips, as I have seen it done. usually they use clear silicone under the lip of the sink, once it hardens it will not allow water or the sink to slide. Tim

How do we install the clips on the bottom of a top mount sink

The clip with the screw together, with the screw head down and the claw up, go into the channel on the underside of the sink, they go through a slot in the channel then slide to fit about 3 or 4 on each side. Tighten up the screw and it should pull the sink down and clamp onto the wood under side of the counter top. Put a bead of siliconized latex caulk around the edge of the sink before dropping it in, DO NOT USE SILICONE!!!, then with a wet rag, clean it off what gurks out. You should be all set.

How do i put this spring clip back on..i am trying to fix my stopper in my bathroom sink and i do not understand how this goes back on

If you are refering to the little V shaped clip under the sink, you just slide the pop-up rod through the two little holes. Be sure to slide the riser adjuster on in between the two little holes on the V clip. Hope this helps.
